For those furniture geeks out there, The V&A has a history of furniture design going on.

The Dr Susan Weber Gallery tells the story of furniture design and production spanning the past 600 years and displays more than 200 outstanding pieces, including chairs, tables, bureaux, stools, chests, cabinets and wardrobes. Designers such as Thomas Chippendale, Frank Lloyd Wright, Eileen Gray, Charles and Ray Eames, Tom Dixon and Ron Arad sit alongside lesser-known names all selected for their superior techniques.

This new gallery, located alongside the Ceramics Study Galleries, presents the Museum’s outstanding collection of British and international furniture from the 15th century to the present day. It focuses on questions of form, function, and techniques of construction and decoration in the creation of furniture for over six hundred years.

The team at 3rd element used designer inspiration when selecting our furniture lines.

Some of the designs to be found in our product guide are the DSR chair, Tom Vac, Barcelona chair and Isamu Noguchi’s famous coffee table.

Visit the 3rd element website for details on our range.
